striving for excellence...caring for children 
Welcome to Primary 6. 
Our teacher is Mr Joyce  
and our assistant is Mrs Boyce. 

Daily Mile Santa Run 

We joined hundreds of other schools to take part in a very special daily mile!  

Maths Week 

We enjoyed investigating some 'Big Questions' in school and at home as part of maths week. Here we are working together investigating the question, 'How much money would fit on your desk?' 

Odd Socks Day 

Planet Earth Desserts 

As part of our Earth and Space topic we have been looking at the structure of the Earth. We have investigated the properties of the various layers from the crust to the inner core. To help demonstrate the structure we made our very own Earth desserts. 

Read All About It! 

This half term, one of our writing genres is news reports. We have spent some time researching news stories online and worked in groups to complete a newspaper scavenger hunt.  

Outdoor Education Day 2021 

To celebrate Outdoor Education Day we took our numeracy to the Manor Park. We had a range of length challenges to complete using lots of different measuring tools.  

School Council Elections 

We recently took part in the elections for our school council. We wrote manifestos, voted for candidates and then cast our ballots during election day. Well done to our two P6 school councillors, we are all looking forward to sharing our ideas with you!  

Sphero Minis 

Maths is much more fun when you are programming Spheros! We had to solve a number of tasks by driving and programming the spheros. Challenges included manoeuvering through cones and getting the highest score on a dartboard. We learnt about the improtance of changing the speed, distance and duration of the Sphero's roll to make it stop in the correct place.  

Reading Week 

Last week we had a big focus on reading in school and at home. We had special reading activities going on all week, including book chats, question and answer sessions and word hunts. I loved seeing the summaries that pupils uploaded to Seesaw.  


We used the program Scratch to make some animations. We had to build computer scripts using command blocks. We enjoyed animating our names and programming the letters to display special effects. After the mid-term break we will be doing lots more Scratch work and are aiming to eventually build our own computer game!  

Our new Chromebooks 

We recently got 15 brand new Chromebooks to use in school. P6 have been doing lots of work on these, including online reseraching, desktop publishing and using Google maps. Here we are mapping where the Vikings came from and where they travelled to settle.  

Viking Poo! 

Our first topic in primary 6 is the Vikings.We have been looking at what everyday life was like for a Viking living in Scandanavia. To invesitgate what Vikings would have eaten we had to get our hands a little dirty!
